Students in Emergency CARES Fund Fall 2020 Reimbursement Request Form

The emergency CARES fund is designed to reimburse eligible Washburn students enrolled in the Fall 2020 semester with unforeseen expenses for technology, health care, or other as a direct result of COVID-19.

Reimbursement requests for the Fall 2020 semester are available on a first come, first serve basis. 

Requests will be reviewed by a committee and you will be notified when a determination is made. Notifications will be sent beginning 08/17/2020.  The average response time is within 2 weeks from the date you submit. Award amounts may vary.

Applicants must meet the following requirements

  • Completed 2020-2021 FAFSA with Washburn's school code of 001949 and eligibility to receive title IV aid. Get more information on how to complete the FAFSA.
  • Students enrolled in an online only program are not eligible for this fund.
  • Completed emergency CARES reimbursement request. 

Applicants for the emergency fund will receive an email notification to their Washburn email account after a determination has been made.  If approved, funds will be made available directly to the student and will not automatically be used to pay tuition charges or other balances at Washburn.  To expedite the process, we also encourage you to sign up for Direct Deposit.  If direct deposit has not been set up, a check will be mailed to your address on file.  Be sure to verify your address on MyWashburn. 

Applications available until 10/31.
